    Remember, Reid is not a fan of WR for some reason. He has always said he's happy with what he has, which is why they won't ever win a SB. The closest they got was the year they actually brought in a REAL WR in T.O., but I guess that didn't prove to Reid that having a #1 WR can actually HELP your team.

    With Curtis out, Hank Baskett is the team's best fit, Mornhinweg said.

    "Hank's a big, physical guy, and he plays all over the place," he said. "He's a really smart guy, but his main spot is that split end."

That might be because of the debacle tight end L.J. Smith's 2007 season became because of a sports hernia. Curtis said he talked to Smith as well as quarterback Donovan McNabb and cornerback Sheldon Brown, both former sports hernia victims, and came to the conclusion he'll have to find his own way back. "Each injury is different. They're not all the exact same, and there's different time frames," Curtis said.
    Although I wouldn't consider him a #1 receiver like the Eagles do, it is a big blow to the Eagles receiving game. What it does though is open the door for DeSean Jackson to prove himself as NFL worthy a little faster. Andy Reid typically doesn't use rookies, especially receivers right off the bat, but Jackson is going to get his shot. He has critics and I think he has the ability to silence those critics. I just hope he doesn't get overshadowed by the likes of Hank Baskett, Jason Avant, Greg Lewis, or even Reggie Brown for that matter.

    Eagles rookie WR DeSean Jackson was held out of Thursday's game against the Jets.

    It's an indication of how valuable he's become to the Eagles immediate plans. Coach Andy Reid said he can't remember ever holding out a healthy rookie in the final preseason game.

    just wanted to know what you thought of mcnabb today killah

    especially that 90 yarder to baskett!! lol j/k i agree baskett isnt a great option but again i think mcnabb will be huge this season i started him week 1 and am very happy i did!!

    also after following desean jackson the last few years around here @ CAL it was awesome to see him not only get a chance today but to see him play awesome, he had the big catch on the first drive that led to a td and had a few other big catches and had a few decent punt returns over 200 total yards in his first nfl game!!

    Sorry I haven't gotten to this sooner, been hectic busy, then Internet issues when Verizon chopped up Comcast lines when they were installing new Fios lines. I'll answer this by section.

    I thought McNabb had a good game. But this goes back to what I have said about having a good receiver. DeSean Jackson is no Terrell Owens, but is certainly better than any of the junk receivers they have in Philly. Also, McNabb's game was more a part of the Rams just not showing up. No pressure whatsoever on McNabb. Any QB who has 3, 5, 12 seconds to get rid of the ball will have a nice day.

    Hank Baskett. Hahahaha.... Get out of here. The 90 yard play was more Baskett than McNabb, but if you are starting Baskett, your team is in trouble.

    DeSean Jackson had a great game and will have a nice season, career. I like the kid. I was shocked that Philly actually drafted him. His major contribution will immediately be on the return game. 2000% improvement over Reno Mahe and that other crap they had back there. His speed and hands will give McNabb a target that he needs. Jackson has the ability to make plays out of nothing.

    All that said... If you actually watched the Eagles/Rams game. For as bad as the Rams played, there were multiple passes from McNabb that soared 15 feet over the receivers head or fell 5 yards short of the receiver. Jackson made a couple of those errant throws into completions. McNabb is still not a great QB. He just has a better weapon that will help now.

    well first no i would never start baskett in any league it was a joke lol and that 90 yard td should have only been a 30 something yard catch whoever that ram was in the secondary should of made the tackle.......anyways on to the monday night game mcnabb played great imo. i didnt start him this week, went with cutler so that worked nicely but yeah mcnabb had a great game it was a shame they couldnt pull out the W, the mcnabb/westbrook fumble whatever play that was or was going to be cost them big, they had the lead with the chance to make it a 2 score game but they let it slip away.

    also desean played another awesome game, yeah he had that long catch that should of been a td but oh well he still played great and is turning into a huge weapon in the offense. i loved him at Cal but even i didnt expect him to have a game like this let alone 2 this early in his career awesome to watch him play.

    Ankle injury....they really didn't talk about it much here in the Philly area, but the way he landed I would be surprised if he isn't out 4 weeks or more.

    Back-up RB, Tony Hunt also got hurt....his hit looks like it could be extensive.

    McNabb also hurt, but came back... Good chance that he is out next week, MRI scheduled for tomorrow.

    Certainly a banged up Ingram with one knee is better than LJ Smith!!! Didn't Ingram miss the entire '08 season with the Gators?? Dawinna can confirm or deny that one. The Eagles can only hope he stays healthy. I am not a fan of Celek or Schobel.

    McNabb has two years left on a seven-year extension he signed in 2002. He is slated to earn $9.2 million this season and $10 million next, but the money is not guaranteed. On Tuesday, Comcast SportsNet reported that the Eagles and McNabb were working on restructuring the final two years of the deal, perhaps guaranteeing some of the money, if not extending the deal

    Eagles president Joe Banner has declined to discuss McNabb's situation specifically. Banner has said the team will look at renegotiating some deals in special situations.
    Good for McNabb to be quiet while the deal is done. Not a fan of McNabb, but I hate the bitches that whine and cry about their deals and don't do what they are supposed to do even though they still have time and money on their contract.

    Good for Philly fans and potential owners. McCoy will be in camp from the beginning and be prepared to compete with Lorenzo Booker for snaps that Westbrook can't take while he recovers from surgery.

    Certainly better than LJ Smith... But I am not sure I would waste much time or thought on him, unless you are stuck drafting a TE late.

    Whats the news on my man Ingram? How is his knee coming along? He has much more talent than Celek.

    One would like to believe that...but I think this defense is in trouble... I am not seeing this defense excel under Sean McDermott. I don't think they will be a bad defense, I am not sure that they will be a great defense though. This defense used to be able to win games, now McNabb is going to have to get something done, and we all know how I feel about him!

    That said...... RIP Jim Johnson. I firmly believe he was the best defensive coordinator the NFL has seen in some time.

    Meant to post something a few days ago but announcing his replacement couldn't be seen as a good sign of his health.

    RIP, JJ.

    He has to be up there when you think of DC's that were able to come up with great schemes.

    It's a shame because Westbrook is one of the best when healthy. The guy can do it all.
